Macky’s Dim Sum closed for health violations
October 9, 2012
Public Health – Seattle & King County briefly closed Issaquah restaurant Macky’s Dim Sum last week for a series of health violations.
Health officials cited the restaurant for hand-washing facilities, foods not protected from cross contamination, improper cooling of potentially hazardous food, potentially hazardous foods at unsafe temperatures and failure to adhere to the approved risk control plan.
Hilary Karasz, a spokeswoman for Public Health – Seattle & King, said agency inspectors often issue warnings to restaurant owners before a closure is ordered.
The agency closed the restaurant, 317 N.W. Gilman Blvd., No. 43, at 4 p.m. Oct. 2. The restaurant reopened at 11:25 a.m. Oct. 4, according to the health agency.
The reasons for closing a food establishment can vary, and include such issues as failure to follow the permit process and unsafe food handling.
Macky’s Dim Sum opened in Gilman Village in early 2010.
